Has "Wipe the Windows" gone out of print? I can't seem to find a copy.

Dickey and Chuck carried the band in those days!!!!!!!

Fun album. The world wasn't ready for it at the time, but I really enjoy it.

Very under-rated album. That was the Allman Brothers of my high school days.I still enjoy it.

I really like this album....the Liz Reed is very spacey and it sounds great with the Piano

I think some of Gregg's vocals on the lp are absolutely fantastic. I really like to dust this one off from time to time.

Nice Album, and I think Archive CD#4, "Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY 5/1/73" makes
a nice companion album to Wipe the Windows. Windows has a track from Watkins Glen
(Come and Go Blues), so it would be cool one day to see an official release of the ABB
Watkins Glen Show.

With the exception of Ebay or Amazon, it DOES seem like Wipe The Windows is very hard to find,
just like Win, Lose or Draw and Enlightened Rogues. Most of the 1997 Capricorn/Polygram Remasters
seem to be disappearing ever since Universal Music swallowed up Polygram.

Oh, but that was back in the old days.....back when they were periodically putting out archive releases.

I still can't figure out how the record company decided upon the title, which was taken from a Chuck Berry song. Perhaps in the LP manufacturing plant something got screwed up.

It's a refreshing contrast to the sound the band has today...I don't mean this as a judgement on either, just that it's different and since I tend to listen to my ILs more than my old AFE, EAP etc now, this album really stands up.

I've always loved this album...IMO, Can't Lose What You Never Had contains one of Dickey's most explosive solos.

I acquired this LP late in life, myself. It IS killer. Very underrated. I think even Jaimoe has made comments to the effect that he didn't care for it back in the day, but after revisiting it years later, he thought it was pretty good.

Think of the the title of the song.....too much monkey business. Let your imagination take it from there.

Add my name to list of people who love this album! After seeing the band with Duane mere weeks before his death, this was the version that we cut our teeth on and followed across the Carolinas & Georgia over the next few years as their popularity began to soar! Dickey's guitar and Chuck's piano leading the sound of the band forward! I love the Liz Reed, the Jessica, and especially the Ramblin Man versions from this Album. I know most folks around here don't like to admit to loving or even liking Ramblin Man, but if you'll listen to dickey's playing on this cut, It is to me without a doubt one of the most stunning,melodic, beautiful guitar solos ever captured for our enjoyment! Almost every time I hear it, I have to say, "It just doesn't get any better than that!"

I agree, WWDG was a great representation of that particular ABB era. Also couldn't agree
more on Chuck and Dickey really driving things then, from melodys to leads. Dickey has a
very interesting take on Chuck being in the band. From the ABB 40th Anniversary issue
of Guitar Player magazine Dickey is quoted as saying, "It (the ABB) probably wouldn't have lasted as long as it did if it wasn't for Chuck being around". What a statement and a tribute to Chuck.
Just listened to Highway Call and realized, along the same line of WWDG, Chuck was as
much a part of that cd, as Dickey was. Dickey was very generous with all the players
on Highway Call. I wish Dickey would play Wanee and do the complete Highway Call cd!!
Wishful thinking I know.
